HTC Desire received several OTA updates to Android 2.2 during 2010. An update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread has been available on developer.htc.com as a RUU since the August 2011.

Internally HTC Desire bears a strong resemblance to the Nexus One, but differs in some features.

  • A different body shell
  • An optical trackpad in place of the trackball
  • Hardware function buttons instead of touch-sensitive buttons
  • FM radio activated (FM radio in Nexus One is disabled by default but can be activated through hacked firmware)
  • No second microphone for enhanced noise cancellation
  • No dock pin connectors, instead micro-USB is used
  • 576 MB DRAM instead of 512 MB DRAM
  • Dual band HSPA/WCDMA: 900/2100, 850/2100 or 850/1900 MHz depending on vendor[21] instead of 850/1900/2100 tri band
  • HTC Sense interface (not present in the Nexus One)
